Paper Abstract

A multi-pipeline optical interconnection network for distributed computing system has been designed. Each sub-layer network is connected to the ring with an access node (AN), which can transmit data at every wavelength with a tunable laser diode. The data transmission speed at each wavelength is 1.25 Gbit/s. With 8 wavelengths, a total bandwidth of 10 Gbit/s can be obtained. Each AN only receives a certain wavelength. With a band pass filter, the desired optical signal can be dropped down. Pipelining data transmission is achieved among different wavelengths. This network is a multi-pipeline structure. So the communication latency and communication overheads can be decreased. Meanwhile, the ring topology has good scalability. The scale of the network can be expanded adopting more wavelengths at each access node.
